Helpful Hints for Visiting Maranatha

The turnoff for Maranatha Road can be tricky to spot if you’re a first-time visitor. Immediately south of the I-80 overpass, take the first turn to the west — landmarks include the road sign for Maranatha Road and a small electrical substation at that corner.

Please be aware that this windy dirt road can be muddy in patches, depending on the weather and time of year. Please proceed slowly and carefully for about 1.5 miles along this road until you reach Maranatha.

Parking: Free parking is available for all events in our main lot near our main retreat facility. Handicapped parking is available.

A note about your electronic devices: Cell reception is poor to non-existent on the Maranatha campus, particularly in our main building. We choose to view this as a positive opportunity for folks to unplug and get away from the world. Please keep that in mind when you plan to visit us!


For Our Summer Campers

Maranatha hosts a variety of seasonal camps for youth of all ages, primarily during the summer months. Information about drop-off and pick-up times, packing lists, and other information for campers and their families will be available as camp season approaches.
